I'm replying to my own message with a solution and a question.

I can fix the problem by editing speakupmap.map and running the command
./genmap speakupmap.map >/proc/speakup/keymap

The genmap program is in the drivers/char/speakup directory.  This can
be run as a normal user, but it will have to be done every time you boot
the system.  
Is this the kind of thing I should be filing bug reports about, or
should it just be documented somewhere in a speakup Gentoo FAQ?
